Suédois from Euphorium Brooklyn

Eclectic perfume house Euphorium Brooklyn has released its first alcohol-based fragrance, Suédois. The new fragrance is also the first to be packaged in an atomizer bottle, joining previous oil-based scents Cilice, Usar and Wald, all released in 2015.

The fragrance profile of Suédois emphasizes notes of Swedish wildflowers, Indonesian sandalwood, spiced suede, raspberry and a Bavarian cream accord. The word suédois means both "Swedish" and "suede" in French and the fragrance plays to both meanings of the word, evoking the mood of a Swedish summer with beautiful floral and sandalwood notes alongside the soft suede. Like all the fragrances of the house (and the house itself), Suédois has a colorful and imaginative backstory.

"Awakened by Miss Lind’s attendant in the early morning hours of the next day in varying states of undress to the dense aroma of sandalwood, suede, wildflowers, spice, berries, sweet cream and the soft skin of a Swede, the four had apparently no knowledge of what might had taken place in the tender hours of night. Leaving the arms of Morpheus and the grand 'Sleep of Sialam' to awake exposed, but sated and contented in the ways of a society most secret, the four remained close for the remainder of their lives."—Euphorium Brooklyn
